Stay at Home! An illustrated anthology of poems & stories for children in lockdown
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link:

At the beginning of May I was approached by Cranachan Publishing to illustrate the cover and internal pages for an anthology of poems and stories for children in lockdown.

Stay at Home! Poems and Prose for Children in Lockdown is a collection of 40 lockdown-themed contributions by writers based in Scotland. This book was a very exciting challenge, and it gave me a great opportunity to draw a varied range of familiar scenes of family life in lockdown.

These are a few shots from the cover art. The book is available from the 28th of May for digital download through Amazon and the Books from Scotland website.
